Over the summer, Lindenwood has been working to complete four major updates and improvements to certain areas of campus. These improvements will not only enhance the University but also the overall student experience by providing more options and opportunities on campus.
In anticipation for the upcoming Division I athletics season, a state-of-the art video display board will be installed in Harlen C. Hunter Stadium. The board will have the ability to display scores and instant replays.
For those who are looking for a place to work out, Lindenwood is projected to have the Evans Commons Fitness Center renovations completed before students return for the fall semester. The new fitness center will replace the current out-of-date fitness center and will have a modern feel with state-of-the-art equipment.
As the University continues to grow, it is important to expand dining options to meet students’ needs and expectations. With the new enhanced dining options, students will enjoy more local dining partnerships, new and expanded dining technology, an all-you-can-eat option in the Evans Commons dining hall, a wider variety of nutritional and healthy options, and upgraded serving stations and menu items.
Lastly, after many years of being located on the edge of campus directly off Kingshighway, the Lindenwood Barnes & Noble Bookstore is moving to the Spellmann Center. By moving the bookstore to the Spellmann Center, this positions the bookstore to be more centralized, inviting, and easily accessible for students and will serve as a one-stop shop for student needs.
“Lindenwood University is focused on being the next great learner-centric university, which means all of our decisions must be made to support the needs of students,” President John Porter said. “Enhancing the campus wellness facilities and expanding the dining options on campus are meaningful ways to promote a better experience for our students. And our student-athletes and fans alike will benefit from the state-of-the-art video board in Hunter Stadium, enhancing our game day experience for our first season of competition as an NCAA Division I institution.”
All four campus updates are well underway and will be completed before the end of 2022.
